We returned for our last big year. We
knew that suspended sensation between
summer and the Fall Term ahead. We
knew what was to come and, for the
most part, it looked good.
Those of us who'd been here for three
years had known two different admini-
strations and the prospect of the third
one was promising.
We had a young headmaster, and the
challenge of shaping a new beginning.

"Meet people" they said
so we said hellos
and fell into T groups (Sensitivity Training)
"What animal do you think you are like?"
Trust and mistrust,
Anger and hurt
"Confront each other-
find out why you each feel
the way you do."
Many floundered in the
quicksand of emotion
caused by the removal of all
"Who is the most important person in
"I like you."
Not many laughed.
Finally, exhausted, we formed
a big friendship circle
and stood quietly
with each other,

End of Fall Term
The wealth of enthusiasm over a new way of life at Abbot burst into mixed feelings as Fall term
progressed. Student Government exploded into two wary factions and a movement for serious
evaluation started. The power shifted hands quickly and a new era began.
All was not trauma, however. Witness: Due to circumstances beyond our control occurred: Wild Bird
Pie Party, mock elections, and Long Lasting After-Effects of History Exams. The highlight of our career
was changing the furniture in the faculty room— with the recompense of no T.V. or mail. The call of
the outdoors was strong, and sleeping in the courtyard, a snow dance before field day and fire escape
activities satisfied our Pantheistic desires. "Jabberwocky" accompanied Come Ye Thankful at
Thanksgiving Vespers, and P. A. came through in the end with carols and serenading and a pre-Christmas
We left for a much-needed Christmas vacation with the Halleluia Chorus ringing in our ears and a
great deal of hope for a real NEW YEAR.
We started on the assumption that we had
blown it and the hope that we would create a new
Abbot, with a capital A, one b, and two t's, if
necessary. We presented the student body with a
big question mark, and for a term we ran a mara-
thon questionnaire. "What kind of government do
you want?", "Are you in favor of co-ordinate ed-
ucation?", "Would you like to have upperclass-
men proctor in underclass dorms as well as house-
Town meetings and re-evaluation committees
gave every student a chance to voice her opinion
before the new constitution was written. The out-
come of this action was a government that better
reflected the desires and needs of the students
and a new respect for Student Government.
We received two creative days, the beginning
of co-ordinate class scheduling with P. A., con-
crete proposals for our school through exchanges
with other schools, and FOUR MORTON
Dedicated to Hedonism are the following: the
Senior ski trip, Rowen and Yeaton Laugh-in, Pig-
let on the tricycle, the Senior Snack Bar, and the
Prom. Attributed to the Great White Father— four
feet of snow, deposited at convenient intervals.
The most frequented day spot continued to be
the Mill; the night spot, the Senior Parlor. The
zilch, kitchen raiding, full bippies, movie watch-
ing (Fall of the Wild) and MacDonald feasts were
inspiration for theatre of the absurd plays. It was
the 'Time of the Season' for an exhibitionist on
School Street, and seven-course dinners in 4
Morton Street and in the Alcove's frying pan.
Contusions and Abrasions abounded, and
Helene's singing echoed in the purple-dyed corri-
dors. 10:30 curfew on Saturday nights was en-
joyed by some— others heeded the cry of kitchen
duty or knit one, bead two.
We left for Spring vacation after four too
many history papers and one anti-climatic week.
We had only one term left to go and the weariness
and satisfaction of the two behind us made us
realize how little time we had left.
It was a long and difficult year; some of
us were hurt by lessons we learned too
well. Now we wonder what we are leaving
behind. Whether it is good or bad, we
know we did what we could in our own
ways. We graduate with hope and under-
standing that while we learn from the
past, we must look to the future for the
meaning of our lives. We believe in it . . .
And so we dedicate this book to the
MLLE GERMAINE -A.R.OS-A.
When Mademoiselle Arosa leaves
Abbot, we will lose an excellent
teacher and a dynamic individual. Her
unforgettable wit and enthusiasm
combined with her talent for imper-
sonation not only aided her students
through reams of French grammar,
but also captivated the whole school
at her farewell performance. Mad-
emoiselle Arosa believes that life is
giving; there can be no estimate of her
gift to the faculty and students of

mornings later when you're finally in the right
class with the right teacher and the right book
and the right state of mind to begin . . . finally —
and so you do but before you know it you're
being asked to write passionate love letters to cer-
tain unsuspecting souls from P. A. and stuff crack-
ers in your mouth and whistle or chew three
pieces of bubble gum and make it bubbleable and
then you begin learning some of the rules— re-
member next time there's a bell ringing at 2 a.m.
it's a fire drill not a broken clock and be sure to
put your tie shoes on and run up to Draper back-
wards or something and you have experienced the
tie shoes long enough to rejoice when the rule is
abolished. And eventually around your third
week you're begging Miss von E. to come hear the
house out about the roommate situation and you
wonder who all those people in the Sherman Rec.
Room are and what they think they're doing until
you find out it's the Prep day studs' room, oh
well— soon you acquire the idea that you're old
and experienced and it's high time you broke a
rule even if it may be a trivial one so you go out
to the hockey field with the rest of your daring
friends and make all possible noise so as to attract
those great Will Hall type lovers. It's always
worked, at least until you got caught, in which
case you mumble something about just being a
Prep and not knowing better— which doesn't al-
ways work. Of course there's always the classic
P. A. mixer which consists of two problems— one
geographical: Davis Hall? Where's that?, the other
the habit of mixing the wrong mixed-up people.
But the discussion following is really the best
part— my toes are killing me! He wanted to be a
Businessman! His peach fuzz kept tickling me
blahblahblah and yet the academic life if flower-
ing—have you done section 56 yet? Oh, we are
only on 48? What does she mean do a speech on a
controversial topic and have everyone convinced
of your argument in 3 minutes? And the creative
days— are the Greek Classical Period type term
And the year progresses on with small joys of
life like thinking the thumping in your walls at
night was your friend in the next room spelling
something in the code until one day you walk
into your room and find a couple of men with
By now you're into the spirit of Abbot and
you get so deeply involved with the politics and
government of the school and so upset that you
don't have a chance to voice your opinions that
when you do— you forget them! and yet life con-
tinues with the small compensations like knowing
next year you won't be the youngest and the year
after that you won't have to go to study hall and
in the one last year after that you're going to be a
senior and you're hoping your class can be half as
good as this year's senior class at remembering
you, too, were once a prep.
